Green roofs, solar panels, outdoor hallways covered with grapevines and a fish tank in the garage, are just some of the amenities added to this one-of-a-kind eco-property. Designed by inventor/engineer Bryan Beaulieu, this home is off the grid AND off the charts when it comes to sustainability.
Learn how this Arizona homeowner used green roof construction, thermal mass and a cooling tower to build his home without central air and still stay comfortable in the desert. Originally called the "hydrogen house", this property is full of environmentally-friendly ideas.
